We Saved Two Lives Today

We have been looking off and on for a dog ever since we had to give the Great Danes back to their owner (we were fostering them for him). This morning I saw a Great Dane puppy on the web listed as being at the local Humane Society(I haven't posted this, and I should have, but the Humane Society here just got a new 16million dollar building, its GIGANTIC!!! And wonderful) Well Patrick and I took our lunch breaks to go see him, but when we got there they said they didn't have him. I wandered around while Patrick asked them to search some more because he was on their automated web site which updates when dogs are added and adopted etc. I found a sweet 6 month old Tosa Inu who was just soo calm and loving that I melted. It was taking them a long time to figure out what was up and while we waited I asked to see the Tosa. We found out that the Great Dane puppy was on the Euth list. It turned out he had been misclassified and 'fell through the cracks' and would have been Euth'd that day if we hadn't pushed to find out about him.

Patrick met with the Great Dane puppy and I met with the Tosa and I fell in love. He has the perfect personality! he's sweet and calm but not shy, he's more than happy to be playful but when you want to just sit there he will just lay beside you. I felt a great connection with him from the first moment i'd seen him but just being with him there alone cemented my feelings. Now the only issue was the Dane. They are one of my favorite breeds but this Tosa was just too perfect. So I went to meet the GD and it turned out he was waaaay too hyper for us. We had a Dog Meet Dog where the Tosa met the GD and the GD climbed all over the Tosa and the Tosa didn't care, he just let him. That sealed the deal. He was introduced to cats and didn't give a rip(at leats not through glass, we hope hes as good when they aren't seperated).

We adopted him, and saved the other boy from death all in one day! Since the Humane Society has the new building that can accomodate hundreds of animals it now adopts out so many that there is a week long wait for the neutering so we don't get him til then. I have never been more sure of somthing in my life as I am that this is the perfect match for us. I'm so in love with him. He knows sit and stay and he is housetrained (his family had to give him up because they were moving to a no dogs allowed home, he was obviously extremely well cared for though) but we are enrolling him in private obediance training anyways, its guarunteed so if he ever needs touchups on his training its free. Now we just need to name him, Buster is entirely too common for such a perfect doggy.

I wish we could have a 16 million-dollar animal shelter, our animal shelter is in some barracks.
